London: a city of the rich and powerful, and of their prey.
The Left Fang was spawned after Peter and I discovered a mutual love of sci-fi and fantasy, were rejected for one very serious application, and decided to make a B-movie opera instead.
We ended up with a story about vampires, a resistance movement, and mysterious gods. It’s arguably an allegory for inequalities in the UK, but mostly it’s a fantastical thriller.
I particularly enjoyed working on this one, because I made the story using random processes based on Vampire: Requiem. As the first three episodes emerged, Peter and I had no idea what was coming next. We certainly weren’t expecting a god character to appear so soon.
But we had a lot of fun making the fight scene with the fiendishly talented Patricia and Will, and the range of special effects and mood-setting that film made possible.
